Trump to meet Australian PM on 1st presidential trip to NYC

During President Trump's visit he will be making a speech on the USS Intrepid, meeting with the Prime Minister of Australia and, inevitably, messing up New Yorkers' days.

While Australia is a long-time, loyal ally of the U.S., relations were strained after an acrimonious phone call with the PM shortly after Trump's inauguration.

It's expected regional security will dominate talks, in particular the rising nuclear threat from North Korea.

The navies of the USA and Australia successfully cooperated to prevent an invasion of Japanese ships. President Donald Trump and Turnbull will try to patch the rocky start to their working relationship when they meet in NY.

One Trump friend, who requested anonymity to speak freely, said it was not insignificant that Trump's first trip to NY was coming after his first 100 days in office.

Canada's Trade Deficit Narrowed in March
The goods deficit decreased $0.3 billion to $65.5 billion, while the services surplus increased $0.4 billion to $21.8 billion. The goods gap with the European Union rose 19 percent to $11.2 billion in March.

The deal was a source of friction when Trump and Turnbull spoke by telephone in January.

To make matters worse, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer repeatedly called the Australian PM "Trumble" when discussing the refugee deal, noting Trump's "immense respect" for his Australian counterpart and the country's people.

In April, Vice President Mike Pence met with Turnbull as part of a trip through Asia and Australia.

"President Trump has made it clear that we'll honor the agreement - that doesn't mean we admire the agreement", Pence said when he appeared with Turnbull in Sydney.

They will commemorate the 75th anniversary of World War II's Battle of the Coral Sea, when USA and Australian forces teamed up to fight the Japanese.

Kim Kardashian to attend Met Gala without Kanye
The source went on to say that Kanye has made a decision to stay in LA with their kids and is "supportive" of Kim going solo. Since that fateful night, Kimye has blessed us with Met Gala lewks galore, as has the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.

Trump is due at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum Thursday to commemorate the 74th anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea with the Australian prime minister.

Mr Turnbull is expecting a cordial meeting with Mr Trump. After speaking on the Intrepid, the President is expected to forgo a trip to the eponymous Trump Tower and instead will head to Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, where he will likely spend the weekend.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull was speaking hours before he departed Sydney on Wednesday for NY where he will meet Trump on Thursday, more than three months after their heated telephone conversation over an Obama-era refugee deal.

The New York Police Department is gearing up for the visit with an eye toward those anti-Trump demonstrations. He has received some criticism for spending about half of his weekends as president at his waterfront estate in Palm Beach, Florida.

Hundreds of NYPD officers have been deployed to secure his appearance, with many more on standby on surrounding blocks.
